This guy has had his Raptor for 30 days and he posted a video review on Youtube of it. The volume is quite low but turn it up and you'll be good. He thinks it's pretty great even though he was initially worried about buying a first year model. 55mph 1500rpm 10th gear. That's not bad at all.
Glad to know its still great on and off road since that's one thing that people always like about it and probably what attributed to its success since just about anyone can own one. Driving one in the city is just as practical as anything else. Now that off-road part needs no explanation
